Welcome back my pretties! What a week we've had, sunshine appearing, birds singing, WORK again (sorry but we're Naturally Wicked, got to have a little bad with the good). Anyway, do you know what I've been thinking about this week? I can tell you're dying to know! I've been thinking about riddles. I have quite a cryptic mind and I love a good old riddle. It keeps the brain active. I'm usually pretty fast at figuring them out but my partner (who I must say is very intellectual and bright,) actually struggles to solve puzzles. So lets see how many you can figure out from the riddles below.
Please note the answer to each riddle will be revealed below each image. No cheating. Let us know how many you solve (on your own) by leaving your number in the comment box below! Good luck...
